When we heard the rest of the gang pull up we went back and joined the group. We did a lot of riding on tiny game trails, which was fun. We found this elk wallow along the way.
I like this picture of Amy and Moose going to see if there's a trail over yonder.
What a view!
We stopped at two watering holes along the way and both times one of the horses blissfully rolled in the water. He was so funny! Look how he's up to his eyeballs getting a drink:
My sister was dying laughing. Well, we were all laughing, but Amy just about wet herself. Tonka didn't know what to think. I didn't let him lay down in there. He thought about it though. To be honest I'm surprised he wanted to get in. The mud at the edge was just the kind he doesn't like but he cheerfully plowed right in. I guess he really needed to cool off.
That's my good boy.
I can't wait to go again. I'd like to get John to go with me and we could take the two green horses out there. Not both at the same time of course. This area is full of super easy trails and Bella will love the watering holes. I think Scout will too, but he's kind of on and off when it comes to water. It's also really close to my friend's house, so I bet I can talk her into going with me too. Here's the map of our ride.
